Making a Uni-Lightning

Question for the FTE family is it feasible to take a 2003 Lightning running chassis and set a 61 F100 body onto it. Obviously anything can happen with a tig and plasma, but is it really worth the a## pain. I have both trucks and would love to combine the two. Give me your thoughts.

The project is going great. I shortened the Lightning frame by 7in to fit under the body. Had the driveline built last week and now working on the tank. I sectioned the tank to fit and moved the filler neck so that I can use the 61 fill location.
